mystery locations

One of the most interesting mysteries of Death Valley National Park is the sliding rocks at Racetrack Playa (a playa is a dry lake bed). These rocks can be found on the floor of the playa with long trails behind them. Somehow these rocks slide across the playa, cutting a furrow in the sediment as they move.


Some of these rocks weigh several hundred pounds. That makes the question: "How do they move?" a very challenging one.


The truth: No one knows for sure exactly how these rocks move - although a few people have come up with some pretty good explanations. The reason why their movement remains a mystery: No one has ever seen them in motion!


you know we live in a world full of fascinating things..

very hard to answer i looked every where.there are many named RED iland

its a guess really..have a feeling its wrong!

the other problem is there is no such thing as red gold..its yellow

in many shades


the red gold is man made ,by adding copper.in parts.





Gold has many subtle variations in color. By changing the alloys that Is use with fine gold one can get many different hues. One of the favorites is red gold. It is a strong color and works well on it's own or with the yellow and white gold. Copper is used to achieve the red. In yellow gold, sterling silver and copper are used and in white gold palladium and silver are used. Compared to white gold, red and yellow gold are quite a bit harder.



that is why its rather hard to answer..

Its not a micky mouse island, its a proper island popular with holiday makers and cruise ships, part of a group of three islands.



think of the word red translated in different languages and the chemical letters of Gold. One of the other islands in the group of three has a liqueur named after it which is made from a citrus fruit grown on the island

Caribbean Sea, the numerous islands of the West Indies, and adjacent coasts, are collectively known as the Caribbean.



Antilles island-chain. Barbados is relatively close to the South American continent, around 434 kilometers (270 miles) northeast of Venezuela. Its closest island neighbors are Saint Lucia and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines to the west, Grenada to the south-west, and Trinidad and Tobago to the south, with which Barbados now shares a fixed official maritime boundary.


Barbados my answer


in 1750 by Rev. Griffith Hughes describing specimens from Barbados (Quinion 2007). The fruit was originally named the "forbidden fruit" of Barbados (Morton 1987), in comparison to the "Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil" in the Garden of Eden (Quinion 2007). Currently, the grapefruit is claimed by some as one of the "Seven Wonders of Barbados" (Bourne 1996).


how that?

the islands of Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçao




the A from chemical letters for gold and ruba spanish for red for the red soil that tinted the gold.




the drink made from a sour citrus fruit only found in curacao, the blue colour is just dye.

Hi jjj

Star Mountain - Mexico


El Pico de Orizaba (known as Citlaltépetl which means Star Mountain) is a striking volcano. From the west it towers over the town of Tlachichuca in the form of a beautiful white cone. The glacier starts around 4900-5000m and covers the upper aspects of the mountain. Pico de Orizaba is the highest mountain in Mexico and the third highest in North America after Denali and Mount Logan. Orizaba makes for an excellent first experience at high altitude.






ok lets try this one???
